ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NEWLY REMASTERED in 2014! This extra long playing CD is a reissue of internationally acclaimed banjoist/vocalist Cynthia Sayer's first two recordings put together: "The Jazz Banjo Of Cynthia Sayer (Vol 1)" featuring Milt Hinton & Dick Wellstood, and "More Jazz Banjo (Vol 2)" featuring Bucky Pizzarelli & Dick Wellstood. Both recordings won "Top-10 Classic Jazz Release" (Cadence Magazine) for their release year.

Cynthia Sayer's hot, swingy sound will shatter any stereotypes you might have of jazz banjo. Praised for her “drive and virtuosity” by the NEW YORK TIMES, she is regarded as one of the top 4-string banjoists worldwide. Her vocal and arranging talents are the icing on the cake. Cynthia is a founding member of Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz Band with whom she played and toured for over 10 years. Her solo career has taken her well beyond these New Orleans roots as a dynamic instrumentalist, vocalist and performer, whose eclectic, swing-based recordings and shows embody the rarely heard range and versatility of the 4-string banjo. Sayer has played with many leading jazz, popular & roots artists, including Dick Hyman, Les Paul, Marian McPartland, Wynton Marsalis, Bucky Pizzarelli, Dick Wellstood, Kenny Davern, Milt Hinton, Marvin Hamlisch, John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Charlie Giordano (Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band), Tony Trischka, Andy Statman, and many others. She has extensive credits on TV & radio shows as well as feature film soundtracks.

Cynthia has accumulated numerous awards and honors throughout her career, including induction into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame. She has performed for two US Presidents (once at The White House), played with The New York Philharmonic, was the Official Banjoist for the New York Yankees, performed in major venues including New York City's Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, and is the topic of a Trivial Pursuit question! Cynthia was also a subject of the recent PBS TV documentary, “Give Me The Banjo.” A multi-instrumentalist as well, her soundtrack credits include several Woody Allen films on banjo, ukulele and piano. That’s Cynthia on ukulele in Woody’s 2014 feature film release, “Magic In The Moonlight,” and her piano playing with Woody Allen’s jazz band is highlighted in the award-winning documentary film “Wild Man Blues.” Her new CD release, “JOYRIDE” is receiving rave reviews.
